Nile Rodgers To Curate Meltdown 2019

Nile Rodgers will oversee the line-up for this year's Meltdown at London's Southbank Centre

Nile Rodgers has been confirmed as the guest curator for this year’s Meltdown festival.

He follows on from Robert Smith who took the same role last year. Rodgers is the 25th guest curator of the nine-day event which will take place at London’s Southbank Cente from August 3-11.

"To be able to curate and produce nine days of live music for the city of London, the UK and music enthusiasts visiting from all over the world is truly a dream come true," Rodger says. "Anyone who knows my career knows that Funk, Disco, Jazz, Soul, Classical, POP, New Wave, R&B, Fusion, Punk Rock, Afrobeat, Electronic and Dance music all play a role and you can expect that to be reflected in the performances we are planning."

The first line-up announcement is set to follow in the spring and tickets will go on sale in April. For more information on this year’s event, head here.
